Structured Programming for the Unstructured Student; An Individualized Approach?
Dietsche, Peggy; Gehler, Ron
The individualized instructional model used is based on fixed-content, variable time, and fixed proficiency. Flowcharting is retained along with decision tables as part of the training. Top-down modular design is introduced when students are well advanced. Five tasks are identified for use in one individualized system. The first three involve knowing and doing competencies, and the other two concentrate on applying the knowledge in writing well-structured self-documenting programs. Learning packages including a learning guide, resources, and written criterion examination are designed to teach each task. With each packet the student receives a contract to be signed. When mastery of the program is obtained the student is able to write well-structured (top-down, modular) programs. (WBC)
